Forget socks, ties and mugs, get daddy dearest something he can truly appreciate this Father’s Day. What we have here are some cool options to consider for young (or young-at-heart) dads.
Bring On The Funk
British designer Paul Smith has released a capsule collection celebrating music. It includes leather jackets hand-painted by Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja, a trio of Chemical Brothers knits in acid tones inspired by the Born In The Echoes album cover and a velvet embroidered bomber jacket by Nick Cave.
Montblanc’s M Ultra Black by acclaimed designer Marc Newson expresses modernity and timeless elegance. Made of black precious sandblasted resin, the writing instrument’s fluid lines flow gently into one another. A pop of orange can be seen around the forepart paying tribute to Newson’s signature colour.
Get Your Kicks
Chain Reaction is the new iconic Versace sneaker with its eye-catching chain–link sole. An original design element walking the line between the tailored and the casual, it comes in a variety of colour combinations and is a perfect choice for whoever loves fashion and style.
Hublot’s range of watches are perfect for fathers. The Big Bang Unico Golf for example, is both sporty and sleek. Created in partnership with Dustin Johnson, the former number one ranked golfer in the world, it carries a complication that allows wearers to keep score of their golf game.
He’s A Star
Bottega Veneta’s personalisation service now offers a selection of charming graphic symbols. For men’s pieces, choose between a playful Boston terrier icon and a star. The latter goes well in place of the “A” in “DAD,” making it an apt gift for Father’s Day.
From Work To Play
Tumi’s Seneca slim brief is just the thing for dads who need to have their laptop, iPad and other digital devices with them all the time. For those who prefer an over-the-shoulder design instead, the Bates backpack comes with a roomy interior and comfortable leather-wrapped padded straps.
The Juste Un Clou is Cartier’s hallmark “nail” bracelet first launched in the 1970s as a response to the free-spirit and unhindered creativity of New York City. Today, the collection has expanded to include rings, earrings, necklaces and even cufflinks – each one as bold and daring as ever.
Does your dad love hitting the weights? The Under Armour Perpetual workout gear is specially designed for fitness buffs. Each piece provides an engineered stretch, next-to-skin fit and incredibly soft cotton fabric – maximising comfort as he works up a sweat in the gym or outdoors.
